Webber Alumni News Spring 2014

The spring 2015 issue of the Alumni News Magazine will be released soon! We have many great stories in the works, but in the meantime, please read about our awesome alumni in previous issues by selecting an electronic flipbook above.

Since Webber alumni are an impressive group of people, with rich history and great traditions, we feel that there are stories to share, friendships to rekindle, and new and fascinating changes at Webber to discover. Inside the pages of our magazine, you will recognize some familiar faces, read about old friends, and be introduced to the newest generation of Warriors.

Alumni Relations Office

The Alumni Relations Department supports the mission of Webber International University and is a resource for Webber news, activities and programs. Through alumni events and reunions, volunteerism, communications and a variety of services and benefits, our department’s goal is to reconnect alumni with their alma mater and with each other. We encourage and provide opportunities for alumni to engage, support and advance our alma mater, Webber International University.

We are planning many new events this year and hope that you will be able to take time out of your busy schedule to “come back home.” We hope that these events will give you the chance to rekindle old friendships and create new memories. As alumni, we are important players in Webber’s continued success. Let us remember that Webber can only be as good as we alumni help make it. Generous alumni helped make our Webber education possible, so it is our responsibility to carry on the tradition.

If you would like more information on how you can further support Webber, please email Jennifer Mueller at muellerjj@webber.edu or you may call (863) 638-2918.

Brick Campaign

Leave Your Mark at Webber! International Flag Plaza Brick Campaign

Purchase Brick Now

Alumni, students, and friends of Webber International University are invited to make their mark on the WIU campus through the purchase of a personalized engraved brick. Your brick will be part of the beautifully re-designed International Flag plaza, located just outside of the Grace and Roger Babson Library, featuring the historic Rogers granite monument as its centerpiece. Your name, carved in a brick and placed in the plaza, will symbolize the spirit you felt when you were at Webber—the same spirit still present on the campus today!

The International Flag Plaza Brick Campaign is a unique opportunity for students, alumni, faculty, staff and loyal supporters of WIU to show their WARRIOR pride by donating a timeless gift. What a wonderful way to offer encouragement to students while at the same time, honoring or paying tribute to someone important to you through your brick’s inscription. Bricks may be purchased to commemorate school year, honor a special faculty member, or honor a graduate or future graduate. A brick is a permanent means of honoring something or someone special in your life. This is your unique opportunity to extend Webber’s proud tradition of academic and athletic distinction by paving the foundation for a promising future for all Webber students.

In addition to enhancing the overall appearance of the Flag Plaza, your contributions to the Brick Campaign will be used to support various initiatives aimed at beautifying our campus. Projects include: design and landscaping the entrance to WIU, the Beach Beautification Project, and a new outdoor basketball court for resident students, just to name a few. Each 4×8 inch brick will accommodate three lines of engraving and up to sixteen characters per line, including spacing and punctuation.

Order your brick today, and invest in the future of Webber International University.

For more information, please contact the Institutional Advancement Office at (863) 638-2918 or Email Us

Bricks are available in 4×8 inch and 8×8 inch sizes and are priced at $100 and $300 respectively. Bricks will be installed in the order they are purchased.
